The Open Cores "implementation" of "Dirac", is out of date, broken and only even implemented a tiny piece of Dirac. DO NOT EVEN TRY TO USE IT.

There is, as yet, no hardware implementation of long GOP Dirac. However some companies (Numedia Technology and soon others have commercial hardware implementations of Dirac Pro (SMPTE 2042/VC-2). Westwood Rock are developing commercial (but probably not very expensive) Dirac Pro cores for anyone to use. I am told they should be making an announcements within the next few months.

wonder, what hardware was used to test this?
